‘Babouska Rose’ Blanket
is a little crochet project, I have been tinkering with
Inspired by the baby blanket
my grandmother Inge made for me when I was born,
I decided to make one too.
Measuring just 45 x 70 cm,
this baby (crib) blanket is really
‘Quick & Easy’ to make.
To make the ‘Babouska Rose‘ blanket,
I crocheted 24 flower granny squares using
Rico Creative yarns (with a 3.5mm hook).
I finished each granny square with a single crochet border,
and joined them all up using the same
single crochet stitch method that I used with my
T o pretty up the blanket edge some more I added a row of chain stitches
*SC, 3CH, SC*
Even the project naming process was easy.
I usually spend forever trying to think up memorable project names,
but this time was different.
Thanks to my chosen colour scheme.
Red + Brights
Gypsy Caravans + Russian Nesting Dolls
That was surprisingly easy to explain.
The colours I used are:
Fuschia : 13
Cardinal Purple: 11
Turquoise/Sky Blue: 36
The inconvenient truth:
Thank you so much for stopping by Sewing Daisies and checking out some of my crochet blog posts, it’s great to hear from you. I thought I would post a little update regarding this pattern as a number of people have requested further written instructions.
Sorry, but there are no further instructions other than those you find on the blog post.
The main reason for this is because I am a self taught crocheter…from Japanese crochet books (symbols & images). Working from symbols and photos is all I know. I have tried to understand and work from standard written patterns, but I just can’t do it.
So unfortunately all I can offer is a mix of symbols and vague written instruction.
If you have never tried working from symbols, I highly recommend checking out this post on
Annie’s Craft Store
it covers the groundwork in an easy to understand format.
